Double Dragon II: The Revenge is a sequel to the original Double Dragon game released in 1987 and is a side scrolling beat ‘em up game produced and published by the same company, Technos. The game was released for the first time in 1988 as a coin-operated arcade game, but appeared later on Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). There were big differences between the two games. Other versions were released in the following years for Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, Game Boy Advance and PC.
The arcade version of the game begins with Marian, the women from the original Double Dragon, being killed by the leader of the Black Warriors. The player can control one of the same twin brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee, but their task is different. Now they have to avenge Marian’s death.
The arcade version brings an improved control system compared to the first game. Now there are two directional-based attack buttons, left and right, instead of the original punch and kick buttons. Pressing the attack button of the player’s current direction will employ a standard series of punches, while pressing the button in the opposite direction will perform a back kick. Several moves were introduced in this game, such as a Hurricane Kick, which was a powerful attack.
Most of the enemies in the first game returned in the second one too, but were given makeovers and few new moves they could use. The weapons were also modified and, for example, the steel bats and dynamite sticks were replaced by shovels and grenades.
There were four levels in the first game and there are still four in the second one: a heliport, a lumber storehouse, a wheat field and the new hideout of the final boss. There is a sub-boss for each stage. He has to be defeated for the players to get through the next level. After a single-mode game the player will have to confront a double of him to finish the game, otherwise he will encounter his twin brother, controlled by the second player.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge was also the name of the original soundtrack released in Japan in 1990. There are also few tracks from the original Double Dragon game.
The version for PC was released in Japan in 1993, while the version for Sega Mega Drive/Genesis was released in Japan exclusively and features the same levels and moves as the arcade version.
The first release of the series was very popular; the second one followed the same path. The version for Nintendo Entertainment System was rated with a great total average of 8.6 out of 10. No less than 838 users voted when this review was written. The game for arcade was rated with 8.3 and received 35 votes up until now.
